Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC) is the only national organisation dedicated to providing personalised patient support and information for families affected by blood cancer.

We also raise awareness of these diseases, advocate on behalf of patients and fund research into better treatments and potential cures.

Our team of Support Services Coordinators are trained health professionals and support patients, family and whanau wherever they are in the country and for as long as they need us.

Ministry of Health data estimates that there are 21,000 people living with a blood cancer or condition in New Zealand. Six kiwis a day are diagnosed with a blood cancer.

More about us

LBC receives no government funding and relies on voluntary donations to make sure we can continue our vital support.

SKYCITY Dining for A Difference  10 July 2018

SKYCITY Dining for a Difference is a unique fine-dining experience created by top international chef Peter Gordon to raise funds for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC).

The exclusive fundraising event is supported by SKYCITY. Thirteen world-renowned chefs produce a four-course menu with matching wines to provide a distinctive dining experience for a group of 300 lucky New Zealanders. There is also an exclusive auction held on the evening, with prizes including the opportunity to have Peter cooking a special dinner at your home.

Peter has a close connection with the cause. In March 1995, his sister Tracey was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia and he donated bone marrow to save her life. The transplant was successful and Tracey now leads a healthy life.

The event is sponsored by SKYCITY, Lion, The Orange Group, and LEO. 100 percent of proceeds go to LBC.

This year, SKYCITY Dining for a Difference is held on 13 October 2018, for more information or to buy tickets, contact the events team on 0800 15 10 15 (option 1).
